We love this restaurant! The atmosphere is wonderful and the waitress was very attentive. Steak and enchilada dinner was very good! Authentic Mexican food.

Finished my meeting early, got an early lunch here. Used to come to this place when in town years ago. Was my favorite for relleno and red enchilladas. Got the combination plate. They have weakened the red enchillada sauce. More like tomato soup now, too...More

Chose to walk to Forti's from hotel, wasn't too far but was a bit confusing. If I'd been more than a half mile away, I'd definitely want to take an Uber instead, just to make sure. But once in the restaurant, the decor is very...More
